I swear WarGaming drive different versions of some tanks compared to the rest of us. VK3002(DB) being a fast and agile medium? I think he MEANT to say is that it's a slow, fat heavy medium that bleeds speed when you try and turn. "Powerful" 88mm gun? Yeah, at tier 6, maybe, but not at T7.

Yeah, ill agree to that.
That Type 62 vid had it hitting 300 consistently at a reload speed i cant match, with the turret turning faster than i can.
Circle well? Pfft....

However could this be a hint that the new medium line isnt that far off?...

Yeah, the only useful and relevant pieces of information in this whole vid are that the new medium line is coming off the DB (which we already know), they may (*cough cough*) share engines, and they're probably going to be pretty soon, 8.3 or 8.4 (hopefully they won't get pushed back due to the Chinese being delayed).

Would you kindly GET some actual facts.
The VK 3002DB has a better power to weight ratio than the KV-13, the T-43 and the Panther.

It has the highest track traverse rate of the tier 7 mediums, equal to that of the KV-13. By most peoples' definitions it seems that only the T-50 doesn't "bleed speed" for them.

Most of the Tier 7 mediums get the same or practically the same guns as their Tier 6 counterparts, only the T20 and Panther get new guns.

Needless to say I'm re-buying this thing come the new Leopard line.

There is no such thing as unicum, only degrees of pubbiness.

I've driven the T20 and T-43 fairly recently, as well as the VK3002(DB), and it's by far the least agile of the three. It's high paper track-traverse doesn't lead to turning well, especially at speed, the power-to-weight ratio is hindered by poor terrain passability, and it's also the lowest pen out of all the Tier 7 mediums. I love the 8.8cm on my Tier 6 mediums, but at Tier 7 it feels very lacking, more so than the T-43's 85mm.

Before my account transfer, I was driving the VK 3002 DB and it was awesome. No perks or equipment modules, it was averaging at around 1700 efficiency. It is also important to note that in the video, the crew have a few perks each and would have modules like gld or vents.
